    Thank you! Yes, I got it from Northern Tool today. I haven't actually used it yet, but I will let you know what I think of it tomorrow or Monday. Thanks for Looking!

    No problem! I had my isuzu dealer install the outside tank prior to the purchase. The inside tank I got it from Northern Tool for $99 on sale today. Hope that helps you!

    Thanks for the info. I think I might pick one up. I bought a npr a couple of months ago and I'm still trying to figure out how I'm gonna setup the inside of the box. I'm gonna steal a idea or two from you. Thanks

    I got to fill the 2 stroke tank today. I filled all the way up to the cap, just above 15 gallons. One, it was a big mistake, when I got back to my house, it had leaked quite a bit. The cap is not seal tight, I will be shopping around for a better cap today. However, I am very happy with the tank! The gravity feed is not slow at all, specially to fill up handheld equipment and blowers. If I don't find a better cap, we'll just have to put 14 gallons instead.

    Im attaching a picture of the tank after my graphics guy came out and installed the label. When I have a crew running my very expensive equipment, I like to take all precautions!

    Those tanks look good, and I don't blame you, I write really boldly on all of my gas cans I don't need the expense of having to clean the carb and everything out or even worse replacement cost. I do anything I can to prevent issues with equipment.
